Description

“A Little Life follows four college classmates–broke, adrift, and buoyed only by their friendship and ambition–as they move to New York in search of fame and fortune. While their relationships, which are tinged by addiction, success, and pride, deepen over the decades, the men are held together by their devotion to the brilliant, enigmatic Jude, a man scarred by an unspeakable childhood trauma. A hymn to brotherly bonds and a masterful depiction of love in the twenty-first century, Hanya Yanagihara’s stunning novel is about the families we are born into, and those that we make for ourselves.”

    I have nobody to blame, but myself. I asked my book group for a recommendation for a sad book and they delivered.

    Holy crap. No, really…HOLY CRAP. This is hands down the most tragic book I’ve ever read, taking you on a harrowing journey into the dark side of our society and what is left of one of it’s victims. It’s a masochistic’s dream. So, why read it???

    I have never felt so connected to characters in a book before. (I’m not the only one…there is even an instagram page for the BOOK!) I have never read something so raw and real. I have never been taken on such an emotional journey — literally yanked back and forth between the darkest and lightest sides of humanity. I have never read anything like it.

    It’s hard for me to believe that Hanya Yanagihara doesn’t have firsthand experience with what she writes about…it’s that real. My God, I hope she doesn’t, but it’s inconceivable that a writer could be as brilliant as she is without having been there.

    This book changed me.
